Scott's patent furnishes "improved bungs for barrels, kegs, &c., for holding beer and other similar liquids, which will be so constructed as to admit air automatically to take the place of the liquid drawn out, and thus allow the said liquid to flow freely while being drawn, which will close itself automatically when the outflow of the liquid stops, and which will allow the valve to be locked shut when handling the cask, and which shall be simple in construction and convenient and reliable in use."
